    Peace Is the Vibration of Language (from Cultivating Inner Peace)

    Chapter 9 - Peace Is the Vibration of Language
    from Cultivating Inner Peace by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.

    "Words of peace educate us, temper us through rational inquiry, inspire us with what has already been attained, and transform us in the mere receptivity we have to their tremolo. The practice of imbibing words of peace will create within you a hum of peace. Syllabic peace sends transforming shafts of sound shivering through its listeners. Our hearts continue to beat in rhythmic sympathy."

    The Shakers: The Benefits and Limits of Selectivity (from Cultivating Inner Peace)

    Chapter 8 - The Shakers: The Benefits and Limits of Selectivity
    from Cultivating Inner Peace by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.

    "The Shakers are an example. Paragons of selectivity, they produced one of the great outpourings of spiritual peace in American history, yet their heritage is masked by an intensely ambivalent reception that speaks to the essential tension which selectivity addresses. The Shakers deserve our attention as exemplars of both the strengths and pitfalls involved in selectivity. Their example highlights how you can intensify your relationship to peace every day via rigorous selectivity, but also how selectivity can be overdone and become paradoxically un-selective. The Shakers command our attention around the question: Just how much selectivity is peace-bearing, and how much is stifling?"

    Selectivity in Contemporary Lives (from Cultivating Inner Peace)

    Chapter 7 - Selectivity in Contemporary Lives
    from Cultivating Inner Peace by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.

    "In a complex society, a certain level of intricacy must be added into the life of each citizen in order to be able to functionally mesh with multiple social and economic gears. Simplicity in a farmer doesn’t consist in planting a monoculture. Selectivity doesn’t mean constricted, impoverished, or inviable living. Selectivity means conscious choice of what is important, necessary, and salubrious, with conscious relinquishment of what is diluting, distracting, and obfuscating. The choice is personal: live well, plant your crops, be prosperous but not festooned."

    Selectivity and the American Family (from Cultivating Inner Peace)

    Chapter 6 - Selectivity and the American Family
    from Cultivating Inner Peace by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.

    "Our children have lost permission to dwell in their spacious reverie of newness. They no longer inhabit the structureless domes of uninterrupted afternoons. In order for us to function efficiently, we need them to be busy. We also—out of well-intended concern—want to prepare them to deal competently with our gadget-dense sphere, so that, almost from the start, children are propelled into a high rhythmic froth. This could be a sprightly animation if it were balanced by an equal but opposite emphasis on inward serenity and outward harmony, which would provide an orchestrating principle, a focus to the swirl, not precluding skillful assertion, but orienting it. The receptive neurology of a child can catch and hold real experiences in contemplative stillness and inner joy."

    Peace Is Selective (from Cultivating Inner Peace)

    Chapter 5 - Peace Is Selective
    from Cultivating Inner Peace by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.

    "In Part II, I discussed the dynamic quality of peace, the action of returning, like a compass needle to the north. Selecting peace is different, more like writing a song. You quell the sounds of the traffic around you, and a halting tune emerges. If you let it rise and expand, but at the same time contain it, you may happen upon the invisible coherence of melody, which then flows like a stream, bounded and directional. Melody isn’t merely pretty sound, but an organized, integrated channel. You have to push aside distraction—not just noise, but even tangential charm—in order to hear a melody ripple downhill within you."
